The Blas Collective

25079159112_b12c7c67b4_b-960x640.jpg

From Glasgow’s folk music hive of activity, the Blas Collective emerged in 2009 as a jam with a few friends.  Since then it has become an eclectic evening of folk, jazz, country, blues and some pop covers too.  Hosted by singers Jenn Butterworth, Laura-Beth Salter and Hamish Napier, expect to hear songs from the heart-wrenchingly sad to the just plain ridiculous.  Joined by fiddler Adam Sutherland, percussionist Steve Forman and often a few other musical pals, the group jam from basic charts and create on-the-spot arrangements, guaranteeing that every night will be a different experience – which is just the way Bloc+ likes it!

Fight For Friday + Stolen Wings

Forming in late 2014, UK Pop Punk band Fight For Friday have grown up on music together creating a solid bond and finding their sound. Having toured the UK twice and getting ready to set off for a third time promoting the new EP 'Someone You Could Trust', they are ready to take on the UK scene showing everything they have to offer from the high energy to the deep emotion in their tracks.

Based in Cumbria, they have gained northern support; but with big ambitions of planting themselves as firm leaders in bands coming out of the NorthWest scene.

The band's sound combines classic high energy pop punk rhythmic elements and mature, yet catchy vocal themes to create a more modern sounding brand of Pop Punk similar to bands such as Neck Deep, All Time Low and New Found Glory.


Support from Stolen Wings the solo project of Mark Fraser

Dammit: Don't Worry (Specialist Subject) + Lightcliffe

Dammit Presents:

Don't Worry are set for huge things! I've been trying to book these lovely guys for a good while now and i'm so happy that it has finally happened. With a brand new album about to be released through the incredible Specialist Subject Records, expect summer vibes with a grounding in chugging punky, rocky, awesomeness. Sometimes it sounds a bit like Weezer to me, which is a damn good thing. 

Lightcliffe

Touring with Don't Worry are the awesome Lightcliffe from London. Sad style indie, emo, punky sweetness all day long.

19942765_1853478038302609_8160685838351378078_o.jpg

Dammit Presents:

Aerial Salad.

I’m beyond excited to welcome back the Salad lads for another Bloc party!! Easily one of the hardest working bands in the UK right now, Aerial Salad play catchy, heartfelt punk rock with big singalong hooks. They tore the roof off the bar last year when supporting Wonk Unit in Bloc and I’m certain they will do the same again here! This band will be huge, make sure of that! 

Raging Nathans (usa)

Ohio’s Raging Nathans return to the UK after touring with Wonk Unit and Aerial Salad a few months ago. Balls to the wall punk rock that smacks you in the face like a brick covered in spikes. Really long spikes. Don’t let those spikes put you off though, plenty melody and hooks to keep you jumping and having a good time all night long. This’ll be one hell of a punk party!!

Aufbau Principle + Bystandereffect

Screen Shot 2018-07-12 at 11.55.54.png

Formed in late 2017, Aufbau Principle create caustic and doomed out post-punk. Taking influence from the early 80’s dark Manchester sound as well as gothic cinema Aufbau Principle create music from the shards of broken relationships, doomed cityscapes and existential nightmares. Thier second EP, “Abattoir", explores theologic crisis, sex magic, unrequited love and emotional fragility set to abrasive guitar tones, pounding drums and driving basslines.
Aufbau Principle are Kieran Milne, Ruth Switalski, Stefano Pia and Qaiyyum Tajudin.

Support from Bystandereffect - a Glasgow glitch ballad collective.. They combine traditional song structures with bone-shaking bass lines, glitchful beats, twisted synths and manipulated guitars to make a mutated clash of genres. With influences ranging from Atoms for Peace through to Bob Dylan, Bystandereffect occupy the space between the experimental and the traditional.

27544804_10155154431072551_3753797286747138445_n.jpg

For the last few years Bloc+ has been running one of Glasgow’s most popular and consistently high-quality open mic nights, thanks largely to  Jamie Sturt and friends, not to mention our incredibly gifted and facially pleasing clientele.

The gear is all ready to go so, if you’re fed up spending Sunday nights apprehensively contemplating the weekdays of early morning traffic, water-cooler small-talk, dole-office appointments or car theft, pop along and enjoy Bloc’s warm atmosphere and cold beverages. Or is it cold atmosphere and warm beverages…?

There will also now be a free beverage in exchange for a performance from you fine folk! If you want a free water that is also available too.

SUGO - Italian Trash Disco (club night)

Here we are! Back by popular demand for the year 2018!! 
On Friday this time

The long-established Euro trash/Italo party takes over Glasgow for another season. Get your most outrageous costume out of the closet, put your best wig on and come down to glorious Bloc+ for the best party in town.

The best of the worst Italian and European 70s, 80s, 90s music. Come dancing to the sound of the wonderful trashy repertoire that made us proud without making us famous!

Euro-trash hilarity as BLOC becomes an international melting pot for the evening with wild-card visuals and supremely danceable disc-spinning.

The Italian trashy disco returns for another night of supremely danceable carnage. (The Skinny)

PREPARE TO CONGA

IDEAL (album launch) + Cartilage + Old Guard

IDEAL is the solo effort of drummer Grant Donaldson (Civil Elegies). 

We are delighted to be hosting the album launch on June 14th. The album was recorded in a day in the practice space in Donaldson's practice space in less than 4 hours due to time constraints. There will be no physical copies of the record - instead, Donaldson has collected all the broken shards of cymbals he made in the making of the record and I’ll be selling them with download codes. 
All the money he makes in the first week will be donated to SAMH



FFO Black Pus, Greg Fox, Death Grips

Support from Cartilage + Old Guard

The Blas Collective

25079159112_b12c7c67b4_b-960x640.jpg

From Glasgow’s folk music hive of activity, the Blas Collective emerged in 2009 as a jam with a few friends.  Since then it has become an eclectic evening of folk, jazz, country, blues and some pop covers too.  Hosted by singers Jenn Butterworth, Laura-Beth Salter and Hamish Napier, expect to hear songs from the heart-wrenchingly sad to the just plain ridiculous.  Joined by fiddler Adam Sutherland, percussionist Steve Forman and often a few other musical pals, the group jam from basic charts and create on-the-spot arrangements, guaranteeing that every night will be a different experience – which is just the way Bloc+ likes it!

'Edinburgh based quartet, Gypsy_Circus are creating a storm around the Scotland’s capital. Their vintage Blues roots combined with a modern raw indie/rock inspired hooks compliment their buoyant attitude. Aaron King (vocals), Michael Mackay (guitar), Shaun Alderman (bass) and Calum Thomson (drums) have recently released their latest single ‘Notorious Creatures’ and are certainly a band to catch early as they are one of our bands to watch out for in 2018.'

Gypsy Circus - Notorious Creatures

Support comes from young Garage Rock / Pop outfit Public Displays of Affection and Losing Ground's Jack Sutton performing a solo set.
